Turkish Cyrillic (Түркче)

The Turkish Cyrillic alphabet was invented by Ethan Hunt. He invented it in class when he was pondering about Turkic languages. He wondered why Turkish wasn't like the rest of the Turkic languages: it is not written in the Cyrillic script. While Ethan was thinking about this, he decided to create the Turkish Cyrillic alphabet.
